Many people are unfamiliar and perhaps suspicious of MOOCS but they are such a fantastic resource for people who want to study from home in short bursts.  Information by Judith Wright. Link to website  MOOCS.

REBOOT Notts is a new fully online based study for people who have mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression. The study is comparing the effectiveness of information and online peer support through a website called the ‘Big White Wall’  with online information currently available from NHS Choices’ MoodZone. It is being run through The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) East Midlands, at the University of Nottingham.

It is a large study (over 2000 participants) open to anyone residing in Nottingham City or County, over the age of 16 years who is suffering with mild to moderate depression and/or anxiety. People can self-refer and the study website includes an eligibility assessment. Anyone who appears to be too unwell to participate will be asked to give permission for us to inform their GP about their mood level. The study is comparing the clinical and cost effectiveness of an established, direct to public, peer support website (Big White Wall) versus information to aid self-management of depression and anxiety (NHS MoodZone).
